2016’s 10 Bedste Bøger

Sidste år lavede jeg ikke en rangeret liste, men viste bare de 12 bedste fra 2015. I år har jeg været streng og pillet de 10 bedste bøger ud jeg læste i 2016 – og jeg har søreme også strammet mig an og givet dem placeringer fra 1 til 10. Men ret skal være ret, så der kommer lidt honorable mentions til sidst – jeg læste næsten 100 bøger i 2016, så der er altså nogen der fortjener at blive nævnt, selvom de ikke lige nåede ind i top ti.Så uden flere dikkedarer, her er de 10 bedste bøger jeg læste i 2016:

1. Sejlvæveren af Muffy Morrigan

Sejlvæveren blæste mig fuldstændig bagover, og det var totalt uvirkeligt. Tidligere på året havde jeg nomineret Ravnenes Hvisken som den bedste bog jeg havde læst siden Hunger Games – og så kommer den her ud af det blå, og den var simpelthen så fucking fantastisk at hvis du ikke har læst den, så bliver du simpelthen nødt til at gøre det! Der er drager, der er magi, der er komplot og snigmordsforsøg, rænkespil og løgne, alt sammen i rummet tilsat gamle sejlskibe af træ. Det var SÅ freaking godt, jeg åd det råt, og jeg har spurgt Muffy Morrigan på Twitter – der er mere Fenfyr og Tristan undervejs! Anmeldelse her.

2. Ravnenes Hvisken – Bog 1 af Malene Sølvsten

No surprise there, Ravnenes Hvisken er fuldstændig fantastisk og jeg elskede den så meget! Det kan godt være bogen er 700+ sider lang, men jeg fløj igennem den og elskede hvert sekund. Hvis du ikke vil læse Sejlvæveren, så giv i det mindste den her et forsøg. Den er dæleme go’! Anmeldelse her.

3. Dømt Ude, Off Campus #3 af Elle Kennedy

Det kommer nok heller ikke som en overraskelse, at man kan finde alle tre Off Campus-bøger på den her liste. Men min absolutte favorit var altså 3’eren, Deans bog. Det er hot, sexet og rimantisk og vildt addictive! Anmeldelse her.

aftaltspil_v3_1024x1024

4. Aftalt Spil, Off Campus #1 af Elle Kennedy

Den her serie, den var bare en vinder for mig. Så god! Hver bog følger et par om man vil, og ham Garret der? Guuud hvor er han hot altså! Ligesom med alle de andre bøger i serien er den propfuld af skide god humor, mega hot sex og romance. Anmeldelse her.

5. Lagt På Is, Off Campus #2 af Elle Kennedy

Jeg gider ikke gentage mig selv en hel masse, så jeg siger bare at hvis du kan lide sjove, sexede bøger, så læs den her serie ❤ Anmeldelse her.

somdusermig

6. Som Du Ser Mig, Losing It #3 af Cora Carmack

Hele den her serie er fantastisk, men det var altså især bog 3 der vandt mit hjerte. Fantastisk romance, hot set og roadtrip gennem sydeuropa. Så fantastisk! Hvis du kunne lide Off Campus-serien, så er det helt klart forsøget værd at prøve den her serie. Anmeldelse her.

7. Golak, Det Døde Land #1 af Josefine Ottesen

Jeg har set den her bog på bibliotekets hylder, den har stået ulæst på mine egne i hundrede år, og jeg fatter seriøst ikke hvorfor jeg ikke læste den serie noget før. Den er fucking fantastisk jo! Det er ikke den mest actionfyldte serie, men den er så medrivende, og bog et er klart min favorit. Såååååå god! Anmeldelse her.

genfodt

8. Genfødt, Shadow Falls After Dark #1, af C. C. Hunter

Bare lige for at slå det fast, så er det her en efterfølger-serie til Shadow Falls-serien (som jeg btw også elskede), så du skal ikke give dig i kast med den her uden at have læst Shadow Falls først, ellers bliver du spoilet. Men bortset fra det, så var Genfødt simpelthen fantastisk! Det er Della der fortæller historien, og jeg elskede mysteriet og teenagefnidderet og det hele, den var vildt spændende og mega svær at slippe. Anmeldelse her.

9. En Flænge i Himlen af John Green

En flænge i himlen var bogen jeg havde svoret aldrig at læse, som jeg alligevel ved en pludselig indskydelse gik i gang med, og det var også bogen som totalt slog benene væk under mig. Den var helt fantastisk jo! Folk siger at de tudede øjnene ud til den, men jeg synes faktisk ikke den var specielt sørgelig, jeg synes mere den var livsbekræftende. Og fantastisk god! Anmeldelse her.

dronningen_af_tearling_bibi_n

10. Dronningen af Tearling, Dronningen af Tearlig #1 af Erika Johansen

Det her er faktisk en af de bøger, som ikke fik fem stjerner. Men når jeg tænker tilbage på det jeg har læst i 2016, så bliver den her ved med at poppe op i mit hoved, og jeg får jævnligt lyst til at genlæse den. Det er fantasy, og den var virkelig god – og sådan som jeg har det med den nu, så kunne den godt gå hen og blive en all-time favorit. Mine all-time-favoritter er ikke alle sammen nogen jeg nødvendigvis har givet 5 stjerner alle sammen, men det er de bøger som jeg aldrig glemmer og som jeg tit får lyst til at genlæse (eller har genlæst en masse). Anmeldelse her.

Og så er der også en bunke honorable mentions, som også er blandt dem jeg tænker tilbage på som virkelig gode bøger:

  • Nicole Boyle Rødtnes: Ilttyv #3: Under Sløret
  • Maria V. Snyder: Glass #2: Sea Glass + Glass #3: Spy Glass
  • Michella Rasmussen: Stalker
  • Anika Eibe: Er Du Okay, Marie?
  • Boris Hansen: Panteon-Sagaen #1: Vejen til Panteon
  • Veronica Roth: Under the Never Sky #2: Through the Ever Night + Under the Never Sky #3: Into the Still Blue
  • An Ember in the Ashes #2: En Flamme i Natten

 

De Bedste Bøger Jeg Har Læst – En Lang Liste

Okay, nu er det måske lidt farligt at lave sådan en liste her, for den næste yndlingsbog kunne jo egentlig vente på mig i den næste bog jeg tager ned fra reolen derhjemme. Men flere har spurgt om jeg ikke kan lave en liste over de bedste bøger jeg har læst, og det vil jeg egentlig gerne, så dukker der en ny yndlingsbog op rundt om hjørnet, så må jeg jo lave et nyt indlæg.

I forhold til yndlingsbøger, så er det jo ikke helt ligetil. Jeg har yndlingsbøger, som jeg ikke har givet 5 stjerner, og yndlingsbøger som jeg ikke har læst i årevis. Jeg vil mene, at yndlingsbøger ikke behøver få 5 stjerner. For mig er mine yndlingsbøger de bøger, som jeg husker, dem som jeg læser igen og igen, eller dem som rørte mig på en eller anden måde og ligesom brændte sig fast i mig. Hvor lang er sådan en liste så? Det ved jeg faktisk ikke – jeg har aldrig lavet en komplet liste, men nu prøver jeg, og så må vi se hvor lang den bliver. Jeg har ikke tænkt mig at skære nogen fra, som jeg synes hører hjemme på listen. Og så er bøgerne heller ikke i nogen bestemt rækkefølge. Jeg kan ikke overskue at skulle give dem en rækkefølge, jeg elsker jo dem alle sammen. Og så bliver det her en liste over bøger, ikke serier, så der kan også forekomme bøger, som er i midten af en serie.

Og så er der også det, at der går noget tid fra jeg har læst og elsket en bog, til den bliver en yndlingsbog. Det er som regel først efter et år eller to, at en bog ligesom har vokset sig fast hos mig og det går op for mig, at det er en yndlingsbog. Måske har jeg sidste år læst bøger, som bliver favoritter på et senere tidspunkt.

2015: Mest Ventede Bøger – Nye Serier

Jeg synes det ville give god mening at sætte de her bøger på en liste for sig selv. De har alle sammen det fælles træk, at de er på listen over mine mest ventede udgivelser i 2015, men de er også enkeltstående bøger eller begyndelser på nye serier. Listen er i tilfældig rækkefølge. Nogle af bøgerne har endnu ikke fået cover, så der bruger jeg den sædvanlige placeholder. Det skal dog lige nævnes, at Shadow Study er bog 1 i sin egen trilogi, men egentlig er en fortsættelse af Study-trilogien.

Sarah J. Maas: A Court of Thorns and Roses #1: A Court of Thorns and Roses

Perfect for fans of Kristin Cashore and George R. R. Martin, this first book in a sexy and action-packed new series is impossible to put down!

Sabaa Tahir: An Ember in the Ashes

Set in a terrifyingly brutal Rome-like world, An Ember in the Ashes is an epic fantasy debut about an orphan fighting for her family and a soldier fighting for his freedom. It’s a story that’s literally burning to be told.

LAIA is a Scholar living under the iron-fisted rule of the Martial Empire. When her brother is arrested for treason, Laia goes undercover as a slave at the empire’s greatest military academy in exchange for assistance from rebel Scholars who claim that they will help to save her brother from execution.

ELIAS is the academy’s finest soldier—and secretly, its most unwilling. Elias is considering deserting the military, but before he can, he’s ordered to participate in a ruthless contest to choose the next Martial emperor.

When Laia and Elias’s paths cross at the academy, they find that their destinies are more intertwined than either could have imagined and that their choices will change the future of the empire itself.

Maria V. Snyder: Soulfinders #1: Shadow Study

New York Times bestselling author Maria V. Snyder wowed readers with Poison Study, the unforgettable story of poison taster Yelena. Now she’s back with a new tale of intrigue.

Once, only her own life hung in the balance.

Oddly enough, when Yelena was a poison taster, her life was simpler. But she’d survived to become a vital part of the balance of power between rival countries Ixia and Sitia. Now she uses her magic to keep the peace in both lands and protect her relationship with Valek.

Suddenly, though, they are beset on all sides by those vying for power through politics and intrigue. Valek’s job – and his life – are in danger. As Yelena tries to uncover the scope of these plots, she faces a new challenge: her magic is blocked. She must keep that a secret – or her enemies will discover just how vulnerable she really is – while searching for who or what is responsible for neutralizing her powers.

Yes, the days of tasting poisons were much simpler. And certainly not as dangerous,

“Doing full justice to the plot of this original and entertaining epic fantasy is impossible. Suffice it to say that the action is nonstop. The many characters leap to life, particularly Yelena, whose first-person narrative is riveting.”

Melinda Salisbury: The Sin Eater’s Daughter #1: The Sin Eater’s Daughter

Seventeen-year-old Twylla lives in the castle. But although she’s engaged to the prince, Twylla isn’t exactly a member of the court.

She’s the executioner.

As the Goddess embodied, Twylla instantly kills anyone she touches. Each month she’s taken to the prison and forced to lay her hands on those accused of treason. No one will ever love a girl with murder in her veins. Even the prince, whose royal blood supposedly makes him immune to Twylla’s fatal touch, avoids her company.

But then a new guard arrives, a boy whose easy smile belies his deadly swordsmanship. And unlike the others, he’s able to look past Twylla’s executioner robes and see the girl, not the Goddess. Yet Twylla’s been promised to the prince, and knows what happens to people who cross the queen.

However, a treasonous secret is the least of Twylla’s problems. The queen has a plan to destroy her enemies, a plan that requires a stomach-churning, unthinkable sacrifice. Will Twylla do what it takes to protect her kingdom? Or will she abandon her duty in favor of a doomed love?

2015: Mest Ventede Bøger – fortsættelser

Der er vildt mange bøger jeg venter rigtig spændt på i 2015. Jeg har delt indlægget op i bøger som er fortsættelser af serier, og bøger som er begyndelsen på en ny serie. Det her indlæg indeholder de bøger, som er en del af en serie. Og ja, der er mange, men det er vildt svært at sortere fra, så i får den fulde liste. Vær opmærksom på, at bagsideteksten kan indeholde spoilers fra de tidligere bøger. Nogle af dem har intet cover, så der viser jeg bare den sædvanlige placeholder. Listen er i tilfældig rækkefølge.

Melissa Landers: Alienated#2: Invaded

The romantic sequel to Alienated takes long-distance relationships to a new level as Cara and Aelyx long for each other from opposite ends of the universe…until a threat to both their worlds reunites them.

Cara always knew life on planet L’eihr would be an adjustment. With Aelyx, her L’eihr boyfriend, back on Earth, working to mend the broken alliance between their two planets, Cara is left to fend for herself at a new school, surrounded by hostile alien clones. Even the weird dorm pet hates her.

Things look up when Cara is appointed as human representative to a panel preparing for a human colony on L’eihr. A society melding their two cultures is a place where Cara and Aelyx could one day make a life together. But with L’eihr leaders balking at granting even the most basic freedoms, Cara begins to wonder if she could ever be happy on this planet, even with Aelyx by her side.

Meanwhile, on Earth, Aelyx, finds himself thrown into a full-scale PR campaign to improve human-L’eihr relations. Humans don’t know that their very survival depends on this alliance: only Aelyx’s people have the technology to fix the deadly contamination in the global water supply that human governments are hiding. Yet despite their upper hand, the leaders of his world suddenly seem desperate to get humans on their side, and hardly bat an eye at extremists’ multiple attempts on Aelyx’s life.

The Way clearly needs humans’ help . . . but with what? And what will they ask for in return?

Life is almost back to normal for Harper Price. The Ephors have been silent after their deadly attack at Cotillion months ago, and best friend Bee has returned after a mysterious disappearance.

Unfortunately, supernatural chores are never done. The Ephors have decided they’d rather train David than kill him. The catch: Harper has to come along for the ride, but she can’t stay David’s Paladin unless she undergoes an ancient trial that will either kill her . . . or connect her to David for life.

What would you do to save someone you love?

In Fire & Flood, Tella Holloway faced a dangerous trek through the jungle and across the desert, all to remain a Contender in the Brimstone Bleed for a chance at obtaining the Cure for her brother. She can’t quit–she has to win the race, save Cody, and then fight to make sure the race stops before it can claim any more lives. In the next legs of the race, across the ocean and over mountains, Tella will face frostbite, sharks, avalanche, and twisted new rules in the race.

But what if the danger is deeper than that? How do you know who to trust when everyone’s keeping secrets? What do you do when the person you’d relied on most suddenly isn’t there for support? How do you weigh one life against another?

The race is coming to an end, and Tella is running out of time, resources, and strength. At the start of the race there were one hundred twenty-two Contenders. As Tella and her remaining friends start the final part of the race, just forty-one are left–and only one can win.

Two brothers bound by more than blood fight to change a brutal destiny in the heart-wrenching new novel of the Black Dagger Brotherhood by #1 New York Times bestselling author J. R. Ward.

Trez “Latimer” doesn’t really exist. And not just because the identity was created so that a Shadow could function in the underbelly of the human world.

But then an unimaginable tragedy strikes and changes everything. Staring out over an emotional abyss, Trez must find a reason to go on or risk losing himself and his soul forever. And iAm, in the name of brotherly love, is faced with making the ultimate sacrifice…

Top 2014: De Knap Så Gode Bøger

Jeg synes det var lige agressivt nok at give indlægget overskriften “De Værste Bøger”. Altså, det er de jo for mig, men jeg synes lige vi skal slå fast, at bare fordi jeg ikke kunne lide dem betyder ikke, at det er rædderlige bøger som alle skal holde sig fra. Nej, jeg synes ikke de var gode, men derfor kan andre jo godt synes de er gode. Under alle omstændigheder er det disse fem bøger, som jeg brød mig allermindst om i år. Nogle af dem gjorde mig gal i skralden, andre kedede mig, og andre sagde mig bare ikke noget.

19678535

Samantha Young: Tale of Lunarmorte #2: River Cast

Det her er en af de bøger, som gjorde mig så gal at jeg havde lyst til at brænde bogen. Lucien, som er hovedpersonens love interest, er simpelthen så ondskabsfuld, led, idiotisk og kontrollerende, at jeg for min død ikke fatter, at nogen finder sig i ham, og jeg fatter endnu mindre af at hovedpersonen faktisk er forelsket i ham. Han er ondere end ond, og jeg fatter det ikke.

18630419

James Pattersom: Maximum Ride #1: Engleeksperimentet

Den her bog var en af dem som bare ikke var noget for mig. Jeg brød mig slet ikke om humoren, jeg synes den var klodset og kliché, og der var alt for meget action og for lidt forklaring. For mig, altså.

23565112

Martin Vinther Madsen: Slangestenen

Åh hvor ville jeg gerne kunne lide den her bog, men det kunne jeg bare ikke. Det hele føltes så opstillet og overdrevet, som om det var et skuespil og ikke noget der var virkeligt.

20698317

L. J. Smith: The Vampire Diaries #10: Skæbnetimen

Det eneste jeg vil sige om denne er, at de aldrig burde have fyret den rigtige L. J. Smith og ansat en ghostwriter i stedet.

15745753

Rainbow Rowell: Eleanor & park

Som den nok eneste på denne klode kunne jeg virkelig ikke lide den her bog. Eleanor var forfærdelig. For meget svælgen i selvmedlidenhed for mig.

Top 2014: De Bedste Bøger

Egentlig ville jeg have lavet en top 10, men jeg kunne ikke begrænse mig. I år har faktisk været et rigtig godt læseår, jeg har læst en masse rigtig gode bøger, og nogle af dem var helt igennem fantastiske. Det er ikke alle bøgerne på listen jeg har givet 5 stjerner, men det er bøger som jeg stadig tænker på og som ligesom har sat sig fast i min hukommelse. Der er ikke nogen speciel orden i listen, for det kunne jeg slet ikke overskue. Det var virkelig svært at sidde og give dem rankings, så nu får i bare en tilfældig liste med de 11 bedste bøger jeg har læst i år 😛 Vær opmærksom på, at bagsideteksten kan indeholde spoilers fra de tidligere bøger i serien, hvis den er en af de senere bøger i en serie.

But when Gavin Hunter, a Surface Dweller, accidentally stumbles into their secluded little world, she’s forced to come to a startling realization: everything she knows is a lie.

Her memories have been altered.

The time has come for one winner to be crowned.

When she was chosen to compete in the Selection, America never dreamed she would find herself anywhere close to the crown—or to Prince Maxon’s heart.

16068780

Amy Ewing: The Lone City #1: The Jewel

The Jewel means wealth. The Jewel means beauty. The Jewel means royalty. But for girls like Violet, the Jewel means servitude. Not just any kind of servitude. Violet, born and raised in the Marsh, has been trained as a surrogate for the royalty—because in the Jewel the only thing more important than opulence is offspring.

Purchased at the surrogacy auction by the Duchess of the Lake and greeted with a slap to the face, Violet (now known only as #197) quickly learns of the brutal truths that lie beneath the Jewel’s glittering facade: the cruelty, backstabbing, and hidden violence that have become the royal way of life.

Violet must accept the ugly realities of her existence… and try to stay alive. But then a forbidden romance erupts between Violet and a handsome gentleman hired as a companion to the Duchess’s petulant niece. Though his presence makes life in the Jewel a bit brighter, the consequences of their illicit relationship will cost them both more than they bargained for.


13574417

Melissa Landers: Alienated #1: Alienated

Two years ago, the aliens made contact. Now Cara Sweeney is going to be sharing a bathroom with one of them.

Handpicked to host the first-ever L’eihr exchange student, Cara thinks her future is set. Not only does she get a free ride to her dream college, she’ll have inside information about the mysterious L’eihrs that every journalist would kill for. Cara’s blog following is about to skyrocket.

Still, Cara isn’t sure what to think when she meets Aelyx. Humans and L’eihrs have nearly identical DNA, but cold, infuriatingly brilliant Aelyx couldn’t seem more alien. She’s certain about one thing, though: no human boy is this good-looking.

But when Cara’s classmates get swept up by anti-L’eihr paranoia, Midtown High School suddenly isn’t safe anymore. Threatening notes appear in Cara’s locker, and a police officer has to escort her and Aelyx to class.

Cara finds support in the last person she expected. She realizes that Aelyx isn’t just her only friend; she’s fallen hard for him. But Aelyx has been hiding the truth about the purpose of his exchange, and its potentially deadly consequences. Soon Cara will be in for the fight of her life—not just for herself and the boy she loves, but for the future of her planet.

Nanna Foss: Spektrum #1: Leoniderne

Hvornår startede det egentlig?
Med den gamle dame der beskyldte os for verdens undergang?
Med drømmen om de lysende hænder?
Med kompasset der gav os brandsårene?
Eller længe før?

15-årige Emilie tegner en dreng med turkise øjne og et mystisk prismesmykke. Dagen efter får hun et chok, da drengen starter i hendes klasse.

Før Emilie får set sig om, har hun trekantede ar i håndfladerne, og hendes skolekammerater begynder at kunne uforklarlige ting.

Trudi Canavan: Black Magician trilogy #2: The Novice

“Even if a magician’s powers surface of their own accord, he will
soon be dead if he does not gain the knowledge of how to control
them.” Alone among all the novices in the Magicians’ Guild, only
Sonea comes from lowly beginnings. Yet she has won powerful
allies—including Lord Dannyl, newly promoted to Guild Ambassador. But
Dannyl must now depart for the Elyne court, leaving Sonea at the
mercy of the lies and malicious rumors her enemies are busy spreading
. .. until the High Lord Akkarin steps in. The price of Akkarin’s
support is dear, however, because Sonea, in turn, must protect his
mysteries—and a secret that could lead a young novice mage deep into
the darkness. Meanwhile, Dannyl’s first order to resume High Lord
Akkarin’s long-abandoned research into ancient magical knowledge is
setting him on an extraordinary journey fraught with unanticipated
peril—as he moves ever-closer to a future both wondrous . .. and
terrible.
